Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and King Felipe VI of Spain observed a minute of silence with hundreds of people in Barcelona, Friday, in memory of the victims of Thursday’s deadly van attack at Las Ramblas.
A white Fiat van was seen on Thursday afternoon running off the road along La Rambla and into pedestrians outside the Placa de Catalunya metro station in Barcelona, leaving 13 dead and... Еще injuring a further 100 people.
The attack was followed by a similar incident in nearby Cambrils, when five suspected attackers were killed by police gunmen in the coastal town early on Friday morning after reportedly driving an Audi A3 into a group of pedestrians, only hours after a similar attack rocked Barcelona. The suspected assailants are alleged to have been wearing explosive belts. Seven people were injured in the Cambrils ramming.
The attacks have been claimed by the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL).
Police are now linking the two incidents with an explosion that took place early on Thursday morning in the town of Alcanar Platja. It was initially believed to be a gas cylinder explosion, but is now reportedly connected to the assemblage of a bomb by the militant group that carried out Thursday’s and Friday’s attacks.
